The Chartered institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) is supporting the second edition of Professor Boateng’s Compendium of Supply Chain Management Terms

Wednesday, November 08, 2017

The compendium contains an updated list of supply chain management terminologies and
provides a rare all‐inclusive and complete summary of procurement and supply chain
management.
This compendium as a reference guide for students of procurement and supply
management offers a great starting point to gain a better understanding of the
procurement landscape. Professionals many years into their careers will also benefit by
learning about the latest terminologies, and a reminder of those already embedded into
everyday use.
General procurement terminology is relevant across all sectors, but the compendium also
covers sector‐specific terms that add the granularity that professionals need.
CIPS, the world’s largest professional body representing procurement and supply chain
professionals, has also expressed its endorsement of the compendium. In relation to this
support, Group Director, Duncan Brock, agreed that a supply chain compendium was a
useful resource for every procurement professional globally.
“This is an excellent compendium of all you need to know about procurement and supply
chain practice, whether you are an experienced professional, or just starting out. The
content supports a detailed knowledge of the discipline so professionals can offer real
value to the organisations they work for, it is also suitable for policy makers, engineers,
consultants, lawyers, CEOs and finance chiefs.
“The book will appeal to a range of sectors too, so there is something for everyone
irrespective of industry and location. Whether you’re a supply chain manager in the
mining industry or a supply officer in the public sector, this compendium can be used to
just find a reference, or to read from cover to cover, and understand the full gamut of the
supply management profession.
“Professor Boateng gives a great deal back into the profession and is a well‐respected
member of the procurement and supply chain community. His influence and expertise
also extends and expands well beyond the Africa region and the content and quality of
this book will too.” he concluded.
